hello everyone. i've got a RS domain 302 u-turn. since day one, i've never been able to get the full 160mm of travel out of it. at first, i figured it wasn't broken in. after many miles, still no more then 110mm of travel.
2nd thing i checked was oil level, i figured maybe they had too much in it from the factory. so i order a moco damper and while installing that, took the whole fork apart to check the seals/orings and make sure i put the proper oil level in it. with the moco, it's like a whole different fork, but still not getting full travel.
so, i bought another, softer u-turn spring and put that in. still, no full travel. only after reading the tech manual on this fork did i realize, there is no negative spring in my fork. looks like the factory neglected to put it in. the 3 times i had the fork apart, i came across no negative spring.
would this (no - spring) affect travel? i did double check on the sram website (as i was thinking maybe the uturn version had no - spring by design) and the exploded view shows a - spring in this fork.
